“How does our soul resist the thought of the cessation of our personality, of eternal annihilation! The horror vacui that is ascribed to nature is rather innate in the human mind «, writes Heinrich Heine in the afterword of the Romanzero. Death as a consequence, as punishment for the fall of man, the scenario of the Last Judgment, a post-mortem jury with assignment to the actual, otherworldly existence or to eternal damnation of hell, these church dogmas, which can hardly be visualized in terms of primitiveness and vulgarity, have for millennia an ambitious understanding of death, the Attempt to overcome the mental and existential horror vacui in the underground of intellectual history. To see a real affirmation of life as only conceivable against the background of the acceptance of death is the keynote of the texts of this audio book.
